Graphene Technologies and Stratasys announced a partnership to co-develop graphene-enhanced 3D-printing materials. Graphene Technologies, established in 2007 in California, developed a unique patented and eco-friendly way to synthesize graphene from carbon dioxide. Stratasys is a leading 3D printing company, worth over $5 billion.
The US-Israeli BIRD Foundation will help fund this development effort. The foundation recently approved 11 projects worth $8.9 million (with additional $16 million in private sector funds). We do not know how much of that $8.9 was allocated for the graphene project.
